On Feb. 10, The New York Times published an article titled “Coronavirus Outbreak Risks Reviving Stigma for China.”The gist of it is that we should not blame China for epidemics, such as the current outbreak of coronavirus disease. The article also points to the problem of outdated perceptions, noting that US President Donald Trump’s top trade advisor, Peter Navarro, once described China as a “disease incubator,” a comment that even The Times admitted went too far.

Although the nasty comment came years before the current outbreak, that does not change the fact that such claims are downright biased and offensive. Old stereotypes die hard, and they add fuel to dangerous myths. As the article points out, serious outbreaks, such as SARS, did come out of China, but others associated with China may have come from elsewhere, so it is important to avoid the trap of thinking that anything bad equals China.

Disease is something that affects us all, and the United States has had its share of deadly outbreaks throughout its history. In the 20th century, the Spanish Flu killed more people than World War I, which is one of the bloodiest wars in history. First detected at Camp Funston in Kansas in 1918, the virus infected about one-third of the world’s population and killed at least 50 million worldwide, with about 675,000 of those deaths occurring in the United States, according to official data.
